In the eastern Tyrol, about 110 miles southeast of Innsbruck and Salzburg, Austria, Belle Époque elegance combines with the latest in health treatments at the Grandhotel-Lienz.
The Grandhotel-Lienz , with world-class spa and wellness and medical facilities, opened in 2009. It offers 72 light-filled rooms and four royal suites, all with incredible views of the magical Dolomite Mountains. Five dining rooms serve sophisticated international food as well as health-oriented selections. The Bar and the terraced gardens are overlooking the Isel, the last glacial river in the Alps. The Hotel offers also a large indoor and outdoor pool, meeting facilities and underground parking.
The hotel’s health facilities include therapies ranging from the Ayurvedic to the allopathic. Complete physicals and preventive care are offered in the medical center. The Wellness Center provides massage treatments, saunas and steam rooms, foot massages, peels, and warm stones. Swiss Cellcosmet and Cellmen cosmetics are a couple beauty treatments that are offered, as well as cosmetic surgery.
The hotel is located in Lienz, a medieval town of fountains, parks, sculpture gardens, wayside Calveries and Alpine churches with distinctive onion domes. Both the hotel and town utilize green technology, with no oil or gas used in heating and air-conditioning. The hotel relies on solar roof panels, geo thermal energy from an underground lake and electricity produced by the town’s generating station, which is powered primarily by burning wood chips.
